Trade topics
  • Trade policy

The Directorate-General for Trade conducts the EU's common policy on trade with countries beyond the EU borders.

This covers, among other things, Trade negotiations with countries outside the EU, improving market access for exporters and importers, ensuring that fair practices are applied to international trade and assessing the environmental and social impacts of trade.

We often receive enquiries that fall outside the scope of our work, such as questions about trade between EU countries, export/import promotion, import duties and taxation, consumer protection or recruitment in the European Commission.

Therefore we invite you to also check  "Other enquiries" page to see whether your question can be better handled by another service of the European Commission.
